Just a heads up on PBS tomorrow night, Wednesday 10/8 @ 8:00.
I'm not expecting anything as in depth as "Dogfights" but both look interesting.

Dogfight Over Guadalcanal

The sixth season begins with a report on a WWII dogfight over Guadalcanal between Japan's Saburo Sakai and Navy pilot James Southerland.

Debut: A two-part series examining the evolution of war aircraft. First up: the work of the Wright brothers, who eventually sold their creations to the U.S. military; the influence of the rotary engine on propulsion; and the impact of flight on WWI.
